Lady Boys of Bangkok heading to Northern Ireland

Lady Boys of Bangkok
The Pussycat Dolls perform on stage during the Conde Nast Media Group's Fifth Annual Fashion Rocks at Radio City Music Hall on September 5, 2008 in New York City. The girls are due to play Belfast's Kings Hall on 3rd Feb 09.

They may look like a group of gorgeous girls — but everything is not as it seems.

Dressed in sequinned hotpants and scarlet red crop tops, these lovely ladies could be the next Girls Aloud or Pussycat Dolls.

But on closer inspection — much closer inspection — these women are actually men.

And the Lady Boys of Bangkok are heading to Northern Ireland for the first time, with their sensational Mile High Tour.

Billed as a ‘glamorous cocktail of cabaret, dance and comedy’, the flamboyant show will be performed in the Spiegeltent at Custom House Square twice nightly for a fortnight from November 7 to 21.

Demand is exected to be high for tickets to the top-selling show.

For the past seven years the Lady Boys of Bangkok have entertained large crowds at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival.

Up to 16 sexy show-girls (who just happen to be men) will take to the stage for a night of of cabaret, combining Bangkok’s exotic nightlife with the stunning appeal of Las Vegas.

The Lady Boys will perform a range of chart hits and West End musical favourites, from Riverdance to Dirty Dancing Katy Perry to Kylie.

A spokeswoman for the show said: “We are delighted that the Lady Boys of Bangkok are making their Belfast debut.

“The show has sold out in Edinburgh for the past seven years and we’re expecting it to be a similar success story in Belfast.

“It’s not a vulgar show or sexual in any way, it’s just a great night’s entertainment, aimed at anyone and everyone.”

If you've developed a romantic interest in someone special, make your move. Playing the aggressor will boost your confidence. Keep your conversations light and playful.More
